Service at the Arlington Church of the Brethren

Service in action is an important Brethren ideal. The Arlington congregation contributes to many local family, housing, and food assistance outreach efforts through financial contributions, by providing volunteers to local outreach efforts, and through church-organized service projects:

  • Adopt-a-Family Program
  • Back-to-School Drive
  • Blanket and Disaster Relief Funding and Supplies
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Arlington Food Assistance
  • Washington City Church of the Brethren Soup Kitchen
  • The Arlington Community Temporary Shelter (TACTS)
  • Northern Virginia Family Services

Habitat Presentation


Members of the Church, with former pastor Jeff Payne, present a check for $2,000.00 to Habitat for Humanity in honor of the Church of the Brethren's 300th Anniversary.

The goal was to have enough money to buy 300 2x4's and nails.  We surpassed that level with enough for 500 boards and 375 pounds of nails.

Habitat Check




The "check" presented to Habitat for Humanity was designed by Jake Payne.



The Global View

Globally, the Church of the Brethren is a member of the World Council of Churches. The denomination contributes goods, services, and funds to global disaster relief efforts. Through Brethren Volunteer Service, the denomination provides volunteers in areas of conflict such as Northern Ireland and Bosnia, in Central and Latin America, and in the inner cities and rural areas of the United States. SERRV International, which provides fair trade opportunities for Third World artisans and Heifer International, were founded by the Church of the Brethren.
